Hair grafts

To keep a hair graft alive when it is moved from the back or side of the head to the balding area you must (1) keep it is a preserving solution for the entire time it is out of the body, (2) never leave it exposed to air for more than 10 seconds or it may die, (3) handle it very gently not squeezing it or crushing the delicate structures.  The generally accepted rule is that it can not be in a holding solution for more than 8 hours, or the survival rate will reduce by 1% or more per hour beyond 8 hours. The faster the grafts are placed, the better
